Marlys Beverly Larson, age 88, passed away peacefully on
Sunday, Oct. 28, 2018 at St. Mary’s Hospital in Rochester. She
had recently moved into an assisted living apartment in Spring
Valley, as she was recovering from serious health issues from

Marlys was born Oct. 29, 1929 in Mower County, MN the 6th
child of Theodore and Dena (Gilbertson) Iverson. She was
valedictorian of her high school graduating class of 1948 and in
1958 began her employment as the bookkeeper for the Farmers
Cooperative Elevator in Ostrander. On Sept 10, 1961 she
married Donald Larson and they made their home in Spring
Valley until his death in 1974. Marlys stayed in Spring Valley
where she enjoyed fishing, playing cards and socializing with
her friends. She continued to work at the Ostrander Elevator and
in the 1991 “Celebrate a Century of Living” booklet, created to
commemorate Ostrander’s 100 year history, Marlys was
recognized as one of three individuals who stood out as
providing exceptional dedication and service to the Co-op. She
retired in 1989 but continued to be very active as a volunteer at
the Spring Valley Community Center, preparing and serving
meals. Ann, one of her friends from the center said of Marlys “
she was indispensable to me…” and that most of what she
learned came from Marlys. She volunteered and served there
for many, many years, only recently stopping due to health
problems. Marlys was a true independent spirit who will be
greatly missed by all of her family and friends.
Marlys is survived by her nieces Edda(Ronnie) Willert,
Debbie(Curt) Long and Sherri(Benny) Judice; great nieces and
nephews Cathy, Kristi, Jackie and Dani; Dawn and Scott; Curtis
and Ashlee; Tara, Tasha and Brian, and numerous great, great
nieces, nephews and cousins.
Marlys was preceded in death by her husband Donald(Tony)
Larson; father Theodore Iverson and mother Dena Iverson;
brothers Raymond, Leverne and Henry; sisters Doris (who died
in infancy) and Violet Iverson; and niece Donna Tindal.

others whose lives Marlys touched are invited to a graveside
service at Bloomfield Cemetery in Ostrander, on November 10, 2018 at 1 p.m.

I cried when you passed away... I still cry today... although I
loved you dearly, I couldn't make you stay... A golden heart
stopped beating, Hard working hands at rest... God broke my
heart to prove to me he only takes the best.
